My son and I escaped for a quick trip to Saranac Lake. We had a great time using the kayaks at the Gauthier! The staff were friendly and helpful and they other guests were so nice. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the water, so we enjoyed it in the evening. Great location and great price!

We went to Saranac Lake to celebrate a birthday weekend. Gauthier's is right on the water and has kayaks and other water equipment you can borrow. The staff is friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. The facility itself is a bit dated, but clean and comfortable.

I never ended up staying here because they made it so difficult to make a reservation for a business. The first call I made was met with the fact that they do have government rates but unsure about purchase orders, tax exempt, etc. They'll have the manager call me back. Never happened. Called back. Second call revealed that they don't...

My husband and I needed a cute place to stay with a nice view and some food nearby. We were blown away with the great service David provided and were thrilled when we saw that our room was just steps away from the water. The kayaks and canoes were also available at no extra charge, which was great! The room...

Very glad we chose this place. The manager was very friendly and helpful at check in, gave us extra pods for the Keurig. It was cold and drizzly so we were not into checking out the watercraft or lake. We did very much enjoy sitting in the comfy chairs in front of the lake view in our room. Close to...

Lovely rooms with beautiful views of the lake and mountains. So quiet and peaceful to sit on your balcony and enjoy the night. Nice size rooms, bathrooms are small and the water is HOT so be careful. Very nice manager and staff very helpful. For a small fee of 10.00 you have unlimited use of canoes, kayaks and paddle boats....

The old staff is not very nice. He slammed his door after we asked him about the tripped power in our room. Everytime when we want to ask him about any activity around, he never looked at us. However, other staff are all very nice.

Spent Wednesday and Thursday night here ahead of the Memorial Day weekend and had the whole place to ourselves. We had a lakefront queen room that had a nice view of the lake and marina. The room was quite small, but had a nice balcony and large shower. Towels were soft and the bed and bedding was crisp and clean....

Stayed there again. I was there in August to move my son back into his college. This place is even better then I remembered. Clean room, friendly workers, great view, good price. The only thing I could complain about is they need more , or better parking. That kinda shows how great this place is.

I had read some of the bad reviews and wonder which rooms they had. My room was really excellent and I found the staff responsive. The bed was very comfortable. I like a very firm bed and this was quite firm though not like my bed at home. It would have been nice to have a desk for my laptop...
